I hollowed out my cat so it looks like it's still there. I had to drive it a short distance with the cat removed and it was outrageously loud, but there was no exhaust hooked up from where the cat was all the way back. I don't think the pipe all the way back will quiet it down that much. Same engine.

Im cuttin my cats off of my 96 5.8 and running true duals straight out the back with 3" tips that are 24" long. Ive got a buddy that did the same thing on his 03 and I love it. The Law in my area never looks for cats and honestly we dont ever have any issues with getting tickets from the noise but thats probably because alot of their trucks at the house sound the same way. The tips make a big differece on the way it sounds. It gives it a great rumble when idling and when you get on it WATCH OUT.
